Purpose of the Governing Body

Governors have a strategic role to provide future direction and guidance for schools, with collective responsibility for matters such as the School Improvement Plan, defining the aims and ethos of the school, ensuring delivery of the curriculum, setting the budget, maintaining school premises, agreeing the staffing structure, reporting annually to parents and action planning after Inspections. Parent Governors have a further role in providing a formal link between parents and the school.

The Head teacher is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school, with the Governing Body acting as a “critical friend”.  Governors work in partnership with the Head teacher and Local Education Authority. For all schools, panels and sub-committees are essential. Our sub-committees are Finance, Health and Safety and Teaching and Learning.  These sub-committees look into a variety of issues during the year and reports are given to the next meeting of the Governing Body.
